From Competition to Collaboration: Aligning Institutions to Improve Quality

Date: Tuesday, October 13, 2015

Time: 2:00 PM ET

During this webinar, attendees learned how Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) collaborated with multiple teaching institutions on a physician-targeted initiative to lower pressure ulcer rates, and heard the outcomes of that work.

Quality improvement and patient safety initiatives are top priorities for academic institutions and nonacademic institutions alike. Teaching institutions have added expectations under medical training accreditation to align trainees with institutional quality and safety goals. HCMC aligned five teaching institutions in one metropolitan community to improve pressure ulcer recognition and mitigation through a physician-targeted initiative that engaged trainees.

As a result, HCMC has seen pressure ulcer rates fall to one of their lowest points in more than a decade. Speaker Meghan Walsh, MD, MPH, discussed the challenges and opportunities in creating a community collaborative on quality improvement.
